Description Eric Beisecker 2012-02-13 13:54:35 UTC
Current Behavior: When selecting the 'Create Android Package' option under the 'Project' menu MonoDevelop creates the Package under /bin/{Debug, Release}/ but fails to move it to the location specified in the create package Dialog. (Permission error)

Expected Behavior: The 'Create Android Package' feature should work without error and create an Android packaged in the location Specified in the dialog. 

1) Open a MonoDroid application
2) Select 'Project->Create Android Package'
3) Enter a File Location and Name in the 'Create Android Package' dialog
4) Click "Ok"

I'm not able to reproduce the error in, but I can conform that the HelloM4A.HelloM4A.apk is not saved to the location specified.

In git master, however, it is saved where the user specifies in the dialog (once again, no error).

I'm using the same version of Mono4Android: Mono for Android:

I don't know if this has been fixed, or if there is a different setup between my machine and Eric's.
